I treated myself

We hung something on the wall!!! My mom gave these sketches (if you enlarge the picture you may be able to actually see them) to Bryce and I when we were first married and attempting to decorate Bryce's cute little house. I used really cheap diploma/document frames and during the move I ended up breaking a couple of the frames. I finally got them reframed and did some nice matting with them. I really like them. I saw the wall of colors to choose from and couldn't decide which to mat them with. Bryce picked these two colors out in the first minute. I had no idea what to do, so I trusted him and I think they came out great! Thank you Bryce. Tammy found these sketches at some yard sales. They're pencil sketches mostly of landscapes from pacific islands where my grandpa was during World War II. I think they're just kinda neat. I love them now that they're matted. I like them so much I think I'll post a couple more pictures.

It looks so good. Now all you need to do is start eating dinner in there so that you can enjoy it! It's too pretty to not use :)

Very nice! They look nice with the sconces on either side. Way to go. Do you eat in there yet? :)
